Editor's Note: The following news announcement was submitted by publicity volunteer Nancy Robbins.
The Friends of Roseville’s Harriet Alexander Nature Center (FORHANC) is holding a pig roast party from 6 to 9 p.m. Thursday, June 7 at the banquet room at the Roseville Skating Center, 2661 Civic Center Drive.
This is FORHANC’s big fundraising campaign kick-off event and the cost is only $20 per person. The evening will begin with live music by Bill Cagley and a cash bar, followed by a delicious roasted pig dinner with all the trimmings (a vegetarian option will be available).
Then it’s time for guest speaker Al Batt, humorist and bird lover (Bulletin Board readers in the Pioneer Press know him as “Al B of Hartland, Official Staff Ornithologist”). The evening ends with a spirited live auction of a beautiful wildlife print, “Feeding Time,” by noted Iowa artist Rick Morkel.
Reservations must be received by Friday, June 1st. Reservation forms can be found at www.FORHANC.org or from the Roseville Parks and Recreation office at City Hall (phone 651-792-7006). Email inquiries can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
FORHANC is working with the Friends of Roseville Parks (FOR Parks) toward the goal of refurbishing the interior of the nature center building, with that project estimated at about $80,000.
The St. Paul North Ramsey 500 Lions Club and an anonymous donor already have contributed $3,000, but they’re going to need more pledges to reach the $80,000 goal.
